@david.myers Excellent! If you head over to the project post (linked in my first reply) you can read through the progress so far, which has been figuring out the approach, and see how it lines up with what you’re planning. Then just comment with your interest and maybe a bit more about the course you’re working on and we can take it from there! Great to have you on board
@arthurgreen4 the problem then becomes long-term sustainability/availability of the resources in the text. in a sense the book becomes just a housing for external resources living on github. github might disappear, for instance, which leaves the book with a bunch of broken embeds.
though, perhaps a book on code doesn’t have the same kind of “archiving” importance as, say, a book on Thermodynamics.
anyway, this is the kind of question that we hope Rebus can help answer, eg, “what is best practice for OER with code? where should it live…?” etc.
I don’t have any strong opinions, but it would be good to gather more input to make a good decision about that question, for this, and any other open textbook that wants to display code.
Hello! I teach philosophy at the University of British Columbia and am the lead organizer on an intro to philosophy textbook. Are you interested in helping out? As @lizmays pointed out, that conversation is happening on another thread, here.
Hi @carrie.nelson Thank you for joining the Rebus Community! Connecting global open textbook practitioners in collaborative efforts is a big piece of our mission. Accessibility (and metadata) are top of mind for us so we would love to involve you with our efforts on those fronts.
